I don't know why I put "Cave Man" as the title, but in the moment I typed it in it felt good.
It has been FOREVER since I've been on--or at least a long time.
FIVE MORE WEEKS. And then the semester will be over. Thank goodness. I've decided that I really--And I Mean Really-- don't like economics. It is interesting, but I can't stand it. I had my second microeconomics exam today and I am feeling pretty good about it. First time I've felt good about anything in awhile. Even though the end of my first year in college is coming to an end, I am still sticking with my major. Apparently that is pretty rare. Or so I am told. I was close to changing though, but I am pretty happy with the way things are turning out.
Has anyone read Valis by Philip K. Dick? Or The Cheese Monkey by Chip Kidd? A friend told me about Valis and it sounds interesting. I just found out that he is the same writer of Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly and Paycheck! I had no idea. And I started the first chapter of The Cheese Monkey at work the other day. I guess the writer is coming down to OU to discuss it, but I wasn't sure if anyone else has read his stuff or whatever.
Lets see--I've become incredibly inspired by octopus' and jellyfish recently. I don't know what it is about them, but all of my recent paintings/drawings have some design element based on these sea creatures. I really want to paint a pair of shoes with a cool octopus design...but I'm backed up with so many other things. It is sad.
OK. I need some advice. Male or female. Both perspectives are welcome. I guess I should give some background information on it though....
So it all started with some fool pulling the fire alarm in my building two weeks ago. I 'evacuated' with my roomie and suite-mate and we headed to a small convenience market across the street. I was just in my jammies (1 a.m!) and super sleepy. Because of my sleep deprived state, I wasn't conscious of my manners and yawned deeply and openly. And this really, really cute boy was staring at me and started laughing. I just shrugged it off and laughed as well--I think I may have apologized...anyways, I've seen the guy around my building and campus--and I'm pretty sure he has seen me before. We did one of those awkward 'move out of the way' dances a few days ago. And the most I've ever said to him was "Excuse me, sorry...uhh, thanks!" Should I go introduce myself? Should I extend the olive branch of friendship first? I can't work up the courage, but I really like him--and its sad because I don't even know his name, but he just seems really cool. Ugh, thats my problem. I don't know where to go from "Excuse me, sorry...uhh, thanks!".
I think that is about all that has happened since the last time I posted...sad, but it seems that homework has completely taken over my life.
Thanks for any help!!
